Certainly, we are facing an eclectic and refined artist.

As soon as I started listening to his music, I realized I was dealing with a highly experienced musician.

The compositional skills of Darià Artiola are undeniable. The songs are built in an impeccable way and the chord progression is never predictable and banal.

The choice of sounds is accurate and this artist has succeeded in creating his own sonic limbo.

Darià Artiola mixed very different ingredients and made them coexist in a fascinating balance.

This music brings with it nostalgic and twilight vibes and somehow speaks directly to the heart and soul of the listener.

All the songs are solid and the album follows a coherent thread.

A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.

Darià was raised with the iconic views of the Sonoran desert on the horizon, but with the Mediterranean Sea fundamentally in his heart. The environment of Tucson, AZ shaped him, and his participation in the Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus helped him discover the world of music that he loves to the core. He expresses himself singing and illustrates the reality that surrounds him with his voice.

He sings in English, even though his first words were spoken in Catalan. His Catalan upbringing came from the example of his strong mother who raised him alone, and she is the inspiration for one of the hits of his first album: “She’s Serious”.

Within that title the listener unearths the story of many people who have had to put up with misunderstanding, machismo, and what he calls “stale jokes”, simply because of being a woman; until they decide to spread their wings and flip the script, making life more fun. As a symbol of this, a female vocalist accompanies him on this track, Lucía Layunta, singer for the local cover band Robin Surf.

At 34 years of age, Darià Artiola has already witnessed the passing of some people who are near and dear to him, and those losses catalyzed his maturity process, both personally and musically. Those experiences, coupled with the pandemic inspired the introspection that many of us felt during this challenging time. It has all prompted him to take this leap into the unknown and show his art to the world. A world, that for many residents of Barcelona (where he’s been living for 5 years) was full of fire and chaos in 2019.

Night after night he witnessed destruction and social unrest, wondering how it was possible to use these methods to solve social and economic problems. Although it is evident that they exist, they are not resolved by setting fire in the name of the “revolution” and then fleeing.
He reflects on this chaos in his second single “Questions That Spin?”, and this theme serves to decorate the cover of his first album, created by the local painter, Marc Urgell, artistically known as La Face.
